    I thought that it was posted to throw out the idea that the voting machine company is going to fake the results to put President Bush in power.

    Why would they need to? All they need to do is leave backdoors in the system and let someone else fake the results.

    No paper; no paper trail; no evidence of fraud.

    You get the idea of what I was talking about - I was saying this was posted so that people could say, should President Bush win, "oh they faked it all he didn't get any votes I hate Bush"

    Or maybe this was posted so people will be aware of the potential for abuse and maybe it won't happen.

    If we ignore potential abuses, someone will abuse our ignorance.

    He's already shown he doesn't need to get more than 5 votes to win.

    These stupid Diebold machines have already been PROVEN to be poorly designed and they have many flaws where someone could easily change vote results. Even if the company doesn't support bu$h, the republicans are going to alter the results anyway. We need to takes these machines and smash them! Electronic voting is not secure and not easier than mechanical machines! Bring back the mechanical ones, we don't need more computers for republicans to tamper with.

    In SEVERAL elections accross the country where Diebold machines are used the republicans have already altered results. In so many instances, the democrats are in favor in polls beforehand but then lose when the election happens. It happened to many times to be a coincidence.

    Ok, thats a start. I remember Mondale going down from the time he announced though, so I can't really say that the fact that several races went republican is evidence that those machines were tampered with or the results somehow altered. Is there an article that details why something other than bad polling data or a candidate trending up/down should be assumed?
